PamelaK, hi, it is nice to meet you. I am sorry for the circumstances though. Going through a divorce is very stressful & hard on our CFS. Then add the stress of money & the need for a job & you could be crashing badly just when you need the energy. I had to quit my job when I first became ill & have not been able to work since. I am on Social Security Disability due to my CFS, Fibro & depression. Whether you can work or not only you can tell, some work very well & with no problems & some can work by pushing through each day as best they can. I am sorry you are having to deal with this, do you have a profession that you can fall back on? If you can find something where you are in an office & sitting most of the day might be an option.
Giving up my job was really hard for me & I tried to hang on to it with both hands but it just slipped through my fingers. I was so sick I just couldn't do the job anymore. I missed more & more days of work until I realized I was letting my employer down & so I told them I would be leaving & they thanked me for making it easy for them. I mourned my job for a long time until I came to a point of acceptance that I was ill. I still wish I had my old life but I am okay with my new life. Keep us posted on how you are doing. Hugs going your way, Denise
